Match My Monogram, the first of it's kind, provides a place for mothers wanting to pass along their children's outgrown monogrammed outfits. Personalized pieces can be difficult to part with. Existing options like eBay or a consignment shop are so impersonal. Personalizing the outfit in the first place implies the mother wanted a special item. Match My Monogram grants the mother not only a way to obtain some return on the once-worn Thanksgiving outfit, but also provides a place for her to shop for other custom treasures. The buyer of these items can hopefully experience the same memorable moments with the pieces that the first buyer enjoyed.
Match My Monogram gives brides to be a place to sell their once-prized items. People today tend to collect monogrammed items from an early age. By the time the soon to be newlywed has found that special person to spend their life with they have accumulated quite a collection of custom pieces. Match My Monogram provides a unique place for her to upcycle her assemblage.
Match My Monogram permits family members a place to display their unused heirlooms. Finding someone with the same name or initials is exciting. Everyone shares a certain fondness with a person that shares the same name. Betty's give other Betty's the benefit of the doubt.

Finally, Match My Monogram helps businesses monetize samples and mishaps. Thousands of wholesalers and retailers both small and large have entered the personalization business. Everything from a headband to a pair of shoes are now being monogrammed. Match My Monogram has created a solution for businesses to get a little back after creating samples or making minor mistakes.
The owner of Match My Monogram started the business because people have used monograms for over 2000 years. The Romans and Greeks used them on coins. Royal families of the middle ages used them on flags. Today people use monograms on almost everything. Clothes are a very popular medium. Other things that get personalized include luggage, headboards, glasses, jewelry, and purses just to name a few. Monogramming is here to stay. Glenn O'Brien once said, "A monogram is your name boiled down to the essence, executed with graphic artistry."
A monogram tells a story. It conveys who we are. In an age where everyone brands themselves in the virtual world as well as in reality personalization has become king. Examples include the child wearing a high-end monogrammed outfit to school or the businessman carrying his custom briefcase through airports around the world. Match My Monogram grants the power to both the consumer and consignor as well as providing a tremendous outlet for wholesalers and retailers alike.
Currently the space is experiencing a growth spurt. Match My Monogram launched due to this fact. Mothers all over the world love to personalize their children’s best outfits.

People like things with their names on them. As shoppers continue to spend on customized items, the industry for gently used personalized goods will continue to grow. Owner Katy Chambers states, "The once-prized item or business mishap now won't be stuck in the back of a drawer or thrown in to a closet; at Match My Monogram we upcycle these treasures."
Match My Monogram connects consumers and sellers with the same name. Buyers can conveniently search by letter, name or initials. A match is a terrible thing to waste.
About the Company: Match My Monogram, founded by Katy Chambers, launched in July, 2013. Being a mother of two boys with plenty of outgrown monogrammed clothes and having wondered what to do with her personalized maiden name items, the question of what to do with the unusable pieces began to evolve in to an opportunity. Since the launch of the website, the product line has rapidly evolved from mostly children's clothes to a marketplace with a variety of personalized items. Match My Monogram now works with many businesses providing them an outlet for samples and mishaps.
